Vintage meets modern
NixC is a project where I wanted to show the way to connect two opposite designs. Old fashioned tube displays coupled with classic hand woodwork and modern technology is what represents NixC.
Next generation of NixC is available in two different options - with vertical and horizontal tubes. It includes upgraded electronics, user programmable functions such as sleep mode and ambient light sensor.
Old but new
NixC is a clock built with rare no longer produced nixie tube lamps but electronics closed inside give it a new outlook. It has never been easier to control a device. With a phone, you can remotely set the time, change the colour, backlight effect or enable sleep mode to save tubes' lifetime.
The backlight of the tubes can be changed accordingly to your needs. You can set one colour to be displayed all the time, turn on transitions or completely switch it off to enjoy a pure design of tube lamps.
Due to its classic design, NixC will fit almost any interior style. Natural oak wood, glass tubes and colour adjustment make it extremely versatile.
Getting the shape
I worked on different designs to get great final one. It was an amazing experience working with different materials and techniques. During a software design process, I faced a few obstacles which helped me to learn a lot about coding and controlling the electronics.
Risks and challenges
This is my next Kickstarter project so I am more aware of challenges that may appear during the whole process. I will do my best to realise project and meet the deadlines. Although life always brings unexpected plot twist. If anything happens, I will be updating on my project and be overcoming obstacles not to disappoint any of my backers.
I have clear plan to maintain production up to a few hundred pieces. In the case of an unexpected amount of orders, I have qualified people ready to help me during the production process.
